Suso says he is open to a return to Liverpool and highlighted the allure of Premier League football after enjoying a resurgence in form with AC Milan.

The Spaniard, who has hopes of representing Spain at the World Cup in Russia, left Anfield on January 15 after an unsuccessful four-and-a-half years at Liverpool.

"Premier League football is different, I would call it special: I would like to play for Liverpool again someday. I grew up there and it is a big club."

Suso was limited to 21 first-team appearances but since his low-key arrival for £1m at the San Siro, has re-established his reputation, helping Milan to the Coppa Italia final while the appointment of Gennaro Gattuso as head coach has resulted in an upturn in Serie A results.

"Premier League football is different, I would call it special: I would like to play for Liverpool again someday. I grew up there and it is a big club," Suso told the Observer.

"I'm very happy at Milan. Always when there are rumours about me leaving I reiterate that I am happy here and I think the club is with me.

"I have a release clause and that was something both the club and my agent wanted. If the club wants to continue to be among the top sides and count on me then I am here for them."

"In a sense I became a man before I became a footballer. It was very hard with the lifestyle and language.

"But to this day I remember everything. I did not play that much but I got to know Steven Gerrard and be a team-mate of players such as Luis Súarez, Philippe Coutinho and Jamie Carragher. I'll never forget my experience at Liverpool.

"My heart is torn: if Real Madrid win it will make me happy because it is a Spanish team winning but then if Liverpool win I will be equally happy because it is my former club."
